It was a magical day at Barona Resort & Casino for a lucky guest who bet only one dollar on Barona's new Magic Progressive Jackpot while he was playing at a Caribbean Stud table. With a crowd of players looking on, that one dollar bet turned into a $134,000 jackpot for Jonathan H. of Bonita, Calif.
“We are excited about this new progressive and the many opportunities it gives our players to win,” said Mike Patterson, vice president of table game operations. “The frequency of winning is increased by the Magic Progressive’s unique high tech bonusing technology, which allows the jackpot to rise rapidly by linking various table games together. Jonathan’s win is a great example how easy it is to not only win, but win big with the progressive jackpot. ”
The G3 Progressive Jackpot and Bonusing System, supplied by DEQ Systems Corp, is a linked table game bonusing system that offers progressive and random bonusing, multiple credit betting, random generated prizes and other cutting edge technology that is focused on increasing table game fun.
Players can now place a side wager on their hand or the dealer’s hand for a chance to win the growing progressive in addition to the main table bet, giving players more than seven ways to win— drawing a royal flush, straight flush, four-of-a-kind, full house, flush, straight or magic card. Players can win 500 times their original wager ranging from $1 to $5 based on the hand. If the progressive wagered hand is a royal flush, the player wins 100 percent of the progressive jackpot.
